Nutella Hot Chocolate Recipe

nutella hot chocolate

Mmmm, Nutella. Nectar of the gods, people.

Which is why I was so insanely excited to realize just how easy is to make the thickest, richest, creamiest hot chocolate ever with it.

Take slightly less than 1/4 cup of Nutella. Add it to a large mug of milk (I use almond milk which is healthier and gives an even deeper flavor, but regular milk would also work). Pour the mixture into a small saucepan, and heat on medium-low, stirring, until the Nutella dissolves and blends in.

Pour back into the mug and that’s it!! You can also add cinnamon, but really, this is so rich it doesn’t need any additives.

Feel free to play with the amount of Nutella to make it more or less sweet, but this is easily some of the best hot chocolate I’ve had – layers of rewarding richness. Make it for yourself, make it for your kids (just not every day, because hell no this isn’t healthy), and enjoy this perfect winter indulgence!

New Trailer Roundup: American Heist, Disney’s Cinderella, Al Pacino in Danny Collins

American Heist. For a second I thought “this could be good!” and then…Hayden Christensen. Also, old warhorse of a premise and extraordinarily bad dialogue. I love Adrien Brody, and heist films, but this isn’t for me.

Disney’s live-action Cinderella, starring Lily James and Cate Blanchett. It looks cute but unexceptional, though casting Cate Blanchett as the evil stepmother was a stroke of genius, and great soundtrack

Danny Collins starring Al Pacino. This is a “meh” for me – it’s probably charming and I may watch it on DVD

Poetry: Light Makes Motion

Naked boy makes light like
mosquito, like

key drunk and the door.
I name a ghost for him.

I don’t care – all boys end.
Light goes, popped story like

wanting any him pushed, sucked
flat mosquito, to door.

I name the ghosts for them. Light
goes, breaking out like

wound-touch, like
school child, like

boy become naked can door.

Light goes.
Naked boy crawls shadow to bed.

His name says he will have
greater fortunes than this.

Sound for ghost goes

boy swallows mosquito, like

boy I kissed once, boy
who swallows his name.


boy kiss drunk and the noraebang

song loud as junk food and light
light sour stomach humming light

crystal-spun light

anyone turned on,
turned off.

My name says I will have
greater ghosts than this.

Benedict Cumberbatch Rare Interview: On Fame, Sherlock, and Being a Sex Icon

Benedict Cumberbatch gave a rare, and stellar, interview to Vulture

“And so he has vivid memories of watching his life change not just very quickly but literally over the course of Sherlock’s first 88-minute episode in 2010. “I sort of knew I’d be stepping into the limelight, because it’s such an iconic character,” he says. “But none of us had any idea about what kind of success we’d have on our hands, and it shocked all of us. That first night it aired in England, my God! I wasn’t really aware of this internet TV culture, because I hadn’t really dabbled in a series or something with a potential cult following, like a Doctor Who or a Downton Abbey. But when the internet exploded with this live, immediate audience reaction, it was like being in a theater of millions of people.”
